Revival Gold Intersects 1.5 g/t Gold Over 15.8 Meters and 1.07 g/t Gold Over 18.0 Meters in Near-Surface Oxides at Haidee






Revival Gold Inc. (TSX-V: RVG) (OTCQX: RVLGF) is pleased to announce results from the final six of eighteen core holes drilled in the Haidee deposit area during the Company’s 2022 exploration program at the Beartrack-Arnett Gold Project located in Idaho, USA. Each of the six holes released today intersected above cut-off grade, near-surface oxidized gold mineralization.



  • 1.51 g/t gold over 15.8 meters1 in AC22-086D
  • 1.07 g/t gold over 18.0 meters1 and 0.45 g/t gold over 13.2 meters1 in AC22-089D
  • 0.70 g/t gold over 27.1 meters1 in AC22-099D
  • 0.42 g/t gold over 19.9 meters1 in AC22-093D

1 True width is estimated to be greater than 70% of drilled width.


The 2022 drilling program at Haidee was designed to upgrade and expand the deposit’s current heap leachable Inferred Mineral Resource. A total of 18 holes were completed for approximately 2,900 meters. Results released today from the final six holes of the 2022 drilling program include a couple of high-grade gold intercepts at a tenor not typically encountered in oxidized mineralization at Haidee. These results point to the possibility for continued expansion of the deposit to the south-west in potentially higher-grade material with a lower strip ratio.


“We’ve wrapped up the 2022 Haidee infill and expansion drill program with gold mineralization intersected directly from surface and intriguing high-grade results in the south-west quadrant of the deposit”, said Hugh Agro, President and CEO. “These results bode well for the updated Mineral Resource for Haidee and the successful completion of this year’s Pre-Feasibility Study on the first phase re-start of heap leach operations at Beartrack-Arnett. The gold deposit at Haidee benefits from very favourable metallurgical recoveries, the presence of little or no deleterious elements, a shallow depth of mineralization and advantageous topography. Any future enhancement to grade at Haidee will therefore have a compounding impact on potential economics”.

1 True width is estimated to be greater than 70% of drilled width (see footnote 4 below). Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
2 AC22-086D: Recovery for the intervals 49.4 m – 22.9 m was 40% and 54.0 m – 54.7 m was 35%.
3 AC22-089D: Recoveries for the intervals 22.4 m – 22.9 was 33%; 23.5 m – 26.0 m was 18%; 29.4 m – 30.1 m: 38%; 72.5 m – 74.1 m: 0% and 75.0 – 76.7 m: 29% m – 74.1 m was 0%. The intervals 23.5 m – 26.0 m and 72.5 m – 74.1 m were included in the grade calculation at 0 g/t gold.
4 AC22-094D: Mineralization in the interval 23.8 m – 29.5 m is nearly parallel to the core axis. True width is estimated to be less than 30% for this interval.
5 AC22-099D: Recovery for the interval 11.6 m – 11.97 m was 0%. This interval was included in the grade calculation as 0 g/t Au.

QA/QC Program


Quality Assurance/Quality Control consists of the regular insertion of certified reference materials, duplicate samples, and blanks into the sample stream. Check samples are submitted to an umpire laboratory at the end of the drilling program. Sample results are analyzed immediately upon receipt and all discrepancies are investigated. Samples are submitted to the ALS Geochemistry sample preparation facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. Gold analyses are performed at the ALS Geochemistry laboratory in Reno, Nevada or Vancouver, British Columbia, and multi-element geochemical analyses are completed at the ALS Minerals laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia. ALS Minerals is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited lab.


Gold assays are determined on samples consisting of half drill core by fire assay and AAS on a 30-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA23) for Beartrack, and Fire Assay and AAS on a 50-gram nominal sample weight (Au-AA24) for Arnett. For shallow holes, targeting leachable mineralization, gold content is also determined by cyanide leach with an AAS finish on a nominal 30-gram sample weight (Au-AA13). Multi element geochemical analyses are completed on selected drill holes using the ME-MS 61M method.
